  1. Our maid and her family have house/pet sit for us the last 13 years. We pay $200 pesos per day plus transportation to come and go one time per day plus she also gets paid her additional wages on cleaning day. They can eat whatever is in the kitchen, use our electricity, washer and dryer etc. I really can't imagine being so ... geez I can't even come up with a word clean enough for print .... as to feel I don't need to pay them because they are using our electricity instead of their own! Or, for Pete's sake ... This caring for my pets and house is vacation???😣

    Tremezzo - new Italian

    That's really good to hear ... Hope more restaurants go to the recycled containers in the near future. It seems many have started removing plastic straws.

    Purple Garlic Pizza

    Located in Ajijic on the mountain side of the Carreterra in the block just east of Colon. It used to be Rustica Restaurant. We think it is the best pizza Lakeside including M&J's. The salad was good also ... We like that we can eat there if we wish and have pizza fresh right out of the oven with a fresh salad and a nice glass of wine. Also like the option of 3 sizes of pizza and 2 sizes of salads.

    I think you would call it thin. The edges however are puffed up and absolutely yummmmmmy😊. So glad to hear about the margarita. Will have one on our next visit

    Purple Garlic Pizza

    We had a pizza and a salad there today and it was the best pizza we have had here. Top notch ingredients, really good sauce and enough if it, the crust was soooooo good! Yes, it took us about 3 or 5 minutes to find a parking but it wasn't any harder than many other locations. We will definitely have their pizza delivered by the delivery guys the next time we want delivery. They have a 10", 12" and 16". We ordered the 16" and it was $200 pesos.
  6. You might receive better help if you posted this in the correct form. This is for our furry friends.
  7. We had this same problem early in this year. One check going to bank in States and one to local bank here. It was solved very fast by emailing FBU as given by Bisbee Gal.
  8. Eric it seems you are miss reading the report. It says nothing about several nicks into the tumor. In fact, it says that all the margins appear to be clear. However some of the areas are very thin or narrow.... Nowhere does it say there are several nicks into the tumor.
  9. I, too, am very sad for your impending loss. We just recently lost one of our babies as well. That being said, I know you are very hurt and upset but I'm pretty sure every vet here does their very best. We were years at the Ladrone's until we were told there was nothing else to do but put our beloved pet down. We consulted Dra. Bernice and found our dog had been misdiagnosed. Dra. Bernice gave us about 5 more very happy years. When we were using Ladrone's, Dra. Bernice was not grooming. She was assisting with the surgeries. Gabby was grooming and she is now a vet and working with Dra. Bernice. I think I know how you feel because I wanted to blame Ladrone's for everything they put my dog and us through treating the wrong ailment. It took me a while but I have finally realized the Ladrone's did what they believed was right ... That no one is perfect ... The same thing happens with people doctors. Many of us here Lakeside have used several of the available vets and many have had good and bad experiences with them all. Today I would not hesitate to take my new family of 3 rescues to either Dra. Bernice or to the Ladrone's as I have come to understand they are both very loving, caring and competent vets. Again, I am so sorry you're having to go through this awful time.

    Does anyone know the date and the U.S. Consulate will be Lakeside this month? We need to put our voter registration in the diplomatic pouch.

    Ice and sleet

    We're in San Antonio Tlaycapan in Upper Chula Vista and we had small hail for a good while last night. Thankfully, no apparent damage but we were afraid it was going to break the skylights.

    Okay, Travis, would you rather talk about butter?😊
  14. I will just be happy, Computer Guy, with someone with his own transportation and tools and a willingness to learn about plants and do the work of caring for them. The person I have now is not happy doing the pruning and winds up botching the job every time. I have had it and am tired of replacing plants and/or waiting for them to grow out again. I wish I could take care of the plants myself but my back says a definite NO!
  15. Would be very interested if he had tools. We do know that it is necessary to pay more for gardeners with transportation and tools.
